Stainless Steel Washer Is World's First
"Our best customer is anyone who's ever owned a conventional washer made out of mild steel," says Michael D. Mayer, regional sales manager for the American Kleaner Co., manufacturer of what is said to be the world's first stainless steel hot water pressure washer.
The water tank, fuel tank, coil compartment and tank separator are all made from stainless steel, versus the carbon steel used in most other hot-water, high-pressure washers. Many of the valves, along with the control panel, are also stainless steel.
"All high-pressure washers arĒ subject to tremendous corrosion from hot water, detergents and the petroleum fuel that fires them. Most any conventional steel washer will rust through eventually, and it usually happens at the worst possible time," says Mayer.
The new washer is available in four models, ranging from 144 gal. per hour at 1,000 psi, up to a 270 gal. per hour at 2,000 psi. Each has several new safety features, according to Mayer, including automatic shut-off switches, as well as a contact start-up prevent switch in case water supply to the pump at start-up is inadequate.
Prices range from $2,500 to $3,000. "The price is about $500 above the price for carbon steel washers. Anyone who's had a 'rust-out' knows it's worth the extra money," points out Mayer.
